Arsenal Ace Mesut Ozil Speaks On Real Madrid Transfer, Zinedine Zidane Meeting

Arsenal Star Mesut Ozil has opened up on his move to Real Madrid in 2010 and meeting Legend Zinedine Zidane.


Arsenal signed Ozil from Real Madrid in 2013 after just three years at the Santiago Bernabeu.


TheArsenalstar joined Real after shiningfor Germany at the World Cup in South Africa, and departed having helped them end Barcelona’s dominance of the top flight.


Ozil has now opened up on his move eight years ago.


And the 29-year-old play-maker has also revealed he was damn nervous to meet Zinedine Zidane.


"I was really nervous, happy and grateful also because Real Madrid was such a great club,” he said.


“I had dreamed of playing there because my idol, Zinedine Zidane, played for them.


"My first day there with Mourinho and all my teammates…Of course, when you are new in the locker room you are a little quiet and nervous because the great players were there.


“I was especially nervous when I met Zidane, it was the best moment for me.


“It was in the locker room. Mourinho took him to the first team as his assistant. He was in the locker room, so of course, my hands were sweating.


“You want to try to talk to him, but actually he was really relaxed. He was really quiet and I enjoyed my first encounter with him.


"I had a lot of things in my head, I was thinking about the time when I was young with my friends and I bought his shirt and played like him on the court where I grew up.”


Zinedine Zidane succeeded Rafa Benitez at Real in 2016 and won three consecutive Champions League trophies before quiting in May.
